"I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you'd like". I haven't been there in a long time. "But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?" he said.

The blimp's appearance in central London was approved by the Greater London Authority, and Mayor Sadiq Khan has defended the decision, saying it is not for him to be a censor or to decide what is in good or bad taste.

"Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame", he said.

But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from London's Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to Trump's presence.

His comments are a departure from his remarks earlier in the day when he insisted, "I think they like me a lot in the U.K" although he still insisted even after his Baby blimp lament that real Brits "love the President".

The president, who briefly held May's hand as they walked up the stairs to the palace in a repeat of her visit to White House a year ago, attended the dinner hosted by the British prime minister for over 100 guests, including business leaders from across different sectors. "I think he is a great representative for your country", Trump told the newspaper.

According to the U.S. president, he has told May how to do a Brexit deal, but, "She didn't agree, she didn't listen to me".

Despite a series of diplomatic spats between Britain and Trump, May is hoping for a quick trade deal with the United States after it leaves the EU.

Earlier, British Prime Minister Theresa May invoked wartime leader Winston Churchill and strong transatlantic ties as she hosted Trump Thursday night - hours after he began a protest-laden visit by questioning her Brexit strategy. I think they agree with me on immigration. "I think he's got what it takes".

Chancellor Philip Hammond was more optimistic, saying the U.S. president had been "nodding furiously" while Mrs May was speaking during Thursday night's dinner with Blenheim Palace and had yet to talk to her about the plans, which were published on Thursday in a White Paper. In a statement to the Sun, May did not push back directly against the president but did stand by her position on Brexit.

"The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much".

The president is being hosted by the United Kingdom government throughout his trip, which has been billed as an opportunity to boost trade links and strengthen co-operation on security, and will be welcomed to Scotland by Scottish Secretary David Mundell. "Taken as a whole, [the plan] recreates numerous worst aspects of the European Union the British people voted to leave", Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg told the House of Commons on Thursday.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later told reporters Trump was "thankful for the wonderful welcome" he received in Britain.

The shadow policing minister, Labour MP Louise Haigh, said, "It has emerged that officers being accommodated in Essex are sleeping on cots in squash courts, 100 female officers with four toilets between them, likely to be sleeping on mats tonight, 300 male officers with five toilets between them".

But Mr Trump said the prime minister is a "very good person" denying claims he called her a bossy schoolteacher, or said she was boring.
